In the previous blog post, I discussed several of the attribute checks you could use to validate attribute updates made on the source parcel data before loading into the fabric. As a continuation, in this post I’ll discuss how to use the geometry and topology checks included in ArcGIS Data Reviewer.
Several checks exist that can help with examining the geometry of the lines and polygons. The first, Invalid Geometry check, looks for features with empty or null geometries as well as non-simple geometries. This check can be run on both the Parcel_Lines and Parcel_Polygons feature classes.
In preparation for loading your parcel data into the parcel fabric there are a number of criteria you have to meet. A critical step in the process is to match your source data to the Local Government Information Model, with all its domains and specific attributes. In this blog I’d like to highlight some of the automated checks in ArcGIS Data Reviewer that can help you validate your data prior to migrating it into this new schema, as it is better to identify any errors before you move to the fabric.
